Prepare your home
Try to organise your home so that things are easy to access. You may experience discomfort, particularly when bending over, getting in and out of a chair, getting in and out of bed during the first few days so make things easy for yourself and get some help from a friend or family member.
- Toilet seats – Initially, going to the toilet may be uncomfortable and a raised toilet seat can be helpful. Bending over – Within to first two weeks, try to avoid to bending over too often.
- You may find it easier of you can get some assistance putting on your shoes, socks and compression stockings.
- Remove loose rugs to avoid tripping. If the rugs cannot be removed consider the application of a non-skid backing.
- You may find it easier for the first six weeks to move your bed downstairs onto the ground floor particular if you find it difficult to ascend and descend stairs.
